John McAslan + Partners' design of Crossrail Bond Street Station was unveiled to Londoners yesterday as the Mayor of London Boris Johnson, and Rail Minister Theresa Villiers, revealed the designs of eight Crossrail stations to be built across central London and the Docklands. An exhibition of the designs, which is now open to the public at The Building Centre, London, until 8th December 2010, highlights the scale and extent of the new Crossrail stations at key London locations.
Over the last year John McAslan + Partners has worked with WSP to finalise the design of Crossrail's Bond Street Station, which will be one of the busiest along the new Crossrail line. The project comprises the creation of two deep east-west platforms, with connections to the existing London Underground Station and street level access via two new ticket halls south of Oxford Street. Once completed in 2017, the interchange will serve 230,000 people daily.
The Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, said: "As Crossrail moves from the drawing board to reality we can see the breathtaking benefits it will bring to our city and I'm thrilled Londoners can finally see designs of the world-class stations that we will construct. When complete they will run east to west in a solid backbone of quality infrastructure and style."
Rail Minister Theresa Villiers said: "These designs provide a glimpse of the impressive new buildings that will welcome passengers to the heart of our capital."
Crossrail will be the largest addition to the transport network in London and the South East for 50 years and will help an extra 1.5 million people access London's major employment centres.

Construction of Crossrail began at Canary Wharf on 15 May 2009 and work on Europe’s largest construction project is now progressing at five central London sites.
